Study tours are student-organised international exchange programmes. Based on the idea of 'for students by students', every tour is independently organised by a group of 10 to 20 students from the Cologne WiSo Faculty and a partner institution abroad. Core items on the agenda include reciprocal visits and stays by the student groups in the respective countries.
The study tours aim to offer a well-balanced programme mix, comprising company visits, corporate presentations, workshops and round-table talks as well as introductions to the cultural highlights of the host country. They are intended to foster dialogue and mutual understanding between the participating students, universities and enterprises, thus contributing to the development of long-term networks.
At the moment, two regular study tours take place: the Cologne–Moscow study tour and the Cologne–Warsaw study tour.
